Jesus nasty. It's like alright, we're gonna start by just improvising in these rooms in different areas in the studio. not think about songs not worry. If it's good or bad. Just set up have fun and just create raw material. You know the best part about improvising is year. you don't care. you have no thought you're not thinking about a song. You're not thinking about an audience or who's gonna hear it. You're just listening to each other and reacting just experiencing that joy of being able to take any risk. You can play in three different keys. you can get really weird or just do things that you would never do if you are playing a song with intent and and if you're in improvisation mode than stuff just flows through you, it's like a much greater intelligence those flows through you. I think so we did about five different sessions where we just did that just improvised. We weren't even that careful about isolation. You know the making was kind of spontaneous and intuitive just to have this natural bleed and to have us all be in the room without headphones not worrying about form songs. All about sound rhythm and intuitive interaction. We've always created musical content by improvising and being set up in a rehearsal area and just playing a sort of a demo form like we would turn on a phone or a laptop and just record just to remember ideas what turned out to be the best thing here was since we had the luxury of our own space. We can do the same thing but record at at the highest quality we could so we record directly to a to a tape machine. We could actually use the stuff the the source material that we would actually use it rather than try to recreate it, which we have done in the past. What was so. About that is the other way that people make records where you first hey guys, I wrote a song and let's rehearse the song and now let's perform the song in that scenario. you would never play the way that you would play if you did what we did, which is improvised completely with no form, no structure. No thought of what this is gonna turn into if you have trust, maybe that's what it is. We We trust in ourselves and we trust in each other and we just trust in the music that's just gonna happen. So you don't try to make anything happen. I just listen to what Chris is doing. I listen to what Oliver is doing. I just watch myself do stuff. That's when you get to explore what a band can do musically it goes back to Miles Davis tail Massaro. You know there's a long tradition in in jazz and improvised music in in the sixties of of you know improvisation and then someone will start cut and tape and like what if this section went into this section and you know creating a form out of what was originally very organic improvisation to. It's like we never would have done that I never would have played that and saying song over it or you know I never would have taken that risk or John play some drum fills that are just like why would you play a drum fill there. It doesn't make any sense and we love that you know so it just takes you out of the the normal box of being really organized and and thinking you know just take the thinking out of all the music do the thinking later. Yeah. So that's what I started doing is cutting these things up and creating. Playing them in my kitchen, having a margarita loosening up and just getting inspired by these, these improvisations and words would start coming and songs would start forming and then all of our similar thing would be would be coming up with ideas and songs inspired by these original jams. Yeah, they said the food you're not. The Wood Brothers in general like if we had a theme as a band that was something that we always come back to. it's about connection when we play concert. It's the exciting thing is that we connect with each other on stage we connect with the audience. The songs can create this understanding that we're all living a similar experience, even though we're all unique individuals, but but otherwise we're really are connected. Traveling musicians, That's what it's all about like if it wasn't for that, I would be completely sick of it if it wasn't for connecting with an audience and connecting with each other on the stage and connecting everybody in a room or at a music festival or theater together, whether it's by singing along or whether it's when somebody comes up and says you your music, make me real happy helped me deal with something I may forget something or just made me smile or that's what it's about. It's that healing thing that also heals us. You know the fact that we're connecting, I think a lot of the songs go into that world even with some of them with doubt and some of them with uncertainty. but they're all about that either being connected or wanting to be connected. A lot of it has to do with just how we inhabit navigate our own minds, The title of the record kingdom in my mind sort of suggestive of that and we we have this whole. Life, or maybe most of our lives are just lived in this construct that we've created in here.
